A 32-year-old Indian national has been arrested for serious offenses under the Migration Act 1958 after allegedly applying for a protection visa using a false identity and fraudulent identity documents.

At the Quakers Hill police station in Sydney, this man was arrested after an arrest warrant was obtained by Australian Border Force investigators for the alleged migration fraud. This man who was found guilty will have to face up to 10 years in jail & a heavy fine as said by the Australian border force.

On December 6th he was presented in Blacktown Local Court with a charge of furnishing document containing false or misleading information and even his bail was refused. Garry Low(ABF superintendent investigations NSW) said that this would be a  warning against all those people who think of exploiting Visa Rules.

Superintendent Low said. “Providing false information on a visa application is a serious offense and the ABF actively pursues the prosecution of people found engaging in these types of crimes,”  “If convicted, the offense carries a maximum penalty of up to 10 years imprisonment and fines of up to $110,000.”

Next hearing for the same will be at Parramatta Local Court on 12 January 2019.
